Hello again, Chiang Mai.
Last week included a three day trip to Chiang Mai that included two doctor visits. We returned to Mae Sot for a two-day strategic planning meeting for all the Partners staff in Mae Sot. And then we turned around and came back to Chiang Mai.
And because we’ll be visiting the doctor more in the next week and were actually scheduled to be in Chiang Mai as of this Friday to pick up a team, we’re just sticking around for about 12 days. We’ll meet the team here for a few days of orientation before we go back to Mae Sot, volunteer for about ten days, and then, oh yes, we’ll be back to Chiang Mai for a couple days of debrief with them.
We’re practically moving up here for the month of August.
Good or bad? I haven’t decided. It’s more expensive, which I’m not a fan of. But…the money buys you wonderful food we don’t have regular access to (without hours of personal labor), clothing that actually fits, or perhaps a movie at the theater?!
The days ahead of us have so much potential.
Update on the ear infection: I’m finishing up this set of antibiotics today and still taking Tylenol with codeine. And headed back to the doctor in the morning.
Stephen’s pretty good. His finger recovered from our emergency room visit, and he purchased Tetris for our iPad today because it was 80% off. He’s pretty stoked about that.
Hoping for a good week ahead, perhaps with full hearing to enjoy the endless possibilities of the big city?!
